USA Cheer has released their Music Copyrights Educational Initiative, and as a part of the Spirit community, we have committed to sharing the information and implementing these guidelines at all of our cheer and dance camps and competitions beginning immediately. This program has been designed to ensure that the cheer and dance team community is aware of U.S. copyright laws related to music.

Music Copyrights Educational Initiative Announcement

There is a lot of important information for all of us - event producers, coaches, choreographers, cheerleaders and dancers. To help simplify these new guidelines, Varsity Spirit has created an additional resource (below) that provides you with options for the upcoming competition season. (updated 3.10.18; slides 22/28)
